The centerpieces of Water Ecuador’s work are the water centers themselves. The units are self-sustaining and can produce more than 8,000 liters of clean water every day. The water centers provide clean water for about one-fifth the price of water shipped in from a major city, and the water centers are more easily accessible for low-income families. Each water center can provide more than 100 families with clean water for routine tasks every day.
Pathfinders Project, the yearlong humanist service trip, will be working with Water Ecuador in February 2014.

Interesting approach…Join up!

It's simple but profound—empathy and compassion. I am proud to be able to bring news of this Foundation to my readers. --Avert Your Eye
Foundation Beyond Belief is demonstrating humanism at its best. --Digital Chum
The best part [of FBB membership] is sharing the experience with our children. We want them to help us figure out what our monthly contribution should be and where it should go. --Raising Three Thinkers
[My] kids watched the videos from War Child and Water for People. Learning happened. Humanitarianism happened. My children felt compassion for others and wanted to help. -- Learning from the Kitchen Table
A vital test of any humanist organization's humanism is its ability to help those in need, which the Foundation is doing so admirably. --Paul Kurtz Institute for Science and Human Values
The regular contribution [model] means that our total charitable giving will most certainly increase this year. --Amy Schirmer, member
I scrolled down the list of contribution levels until I hit one that hurts, just a little. But it's a good kind of hurt. --Peter Nothnagle, member
